Volunteer Application Form

We appreciate your interest in serving with us as a volunteer! To volunteer is a place of responsibility in the church and those volunteering are expected to be examples in faith, conduct and family life. Maintaining a high standard for volunteers is one of the best ways to present Christ to the families of our church and our community.

Explanation: It is our intention to find out more about the people that we are entrusting with responsibilities, therefore, this application will be asking some very personal and private questions. The information contained in this application will be treated with the utmost of confidentiality and respect. At all times, these instruments will be stored under a locked system. No one will have access without proper authorization.

The questions contained herein are not designed to offend or to pass judgment, but rather create an environment where a person’s past will not hinder the ministry in carrying out their mission in a safe, fun and productive way. If you are a person who must answer affirmatively to any of the personal questions on the following pages, be assured that this does not necessarily preclude you from ever serving.

This application is to be completed by ALL applicants for any volunteer position. This is NOT an employment application.

me, my heirs or family, on account of compliance or any attempts to comply, with this authorization.
